Here’s what you need to do to obtain the Ancient Sword for Clive in Final Fantasy 16.
Not inheriting Pheonix’s power like his father meant Clive always had to prove his worth as a warrior through his swordsmanship. That’s why players will often see Clive relying on his sword skills, even after receiving the power of multiple Eikons in his adulthood.
That said, good swords are hard to come by in the war-riddled Valisthea and can oftentimes only be forged after obtaining their design drafts and gathering the required materials. However, there are a few exceptions, and the Ancient Sword is one of them.

FF16 Ancient Sword Location
Once you’ve reached Boklad, keep heading south until you’ve reached the center of The Steps of the Forgotten map area. Upon reaching the map center, head west until you see a small hill.
Go up all the way towards the two Helldivers, and climb up the ledge to enter a new area. You will find a white treasure chest there containing the Ancient Sword. And that’s it – you’ve unlocked yourself a rare sword from the age of the Fallen!
